The workflow «Expense report» is a comprehensive documentation preparation tool. With various inputs, it allows to create documents to register the expenses for fuel, business trips or representative expenses.

The workflow «Expense report» placed in Activity Stream: WorkflowExpense report. Besides the workflow, two universal lists are used for generating reports. These lists are located in the menu: ServicesLists.

1) Expense reports — this list is used for accounting of company expenses for various representative events.

 

2) Cash register receipts — several checks can be attached to each report, that’s why the separate list for checks is used.


Templates for generating the documents are stored on the «Company Drive», folder «Document Templates».


Generated documents are stored in the folder «Ready documents». For each expense report is created its own folder.


It's possible to change the place of storing the generated documents, it is specified with the help of workflow's constants.

The documents are stored into this folder, based on the list of documents, which is necessary for the selected type of expense report.


Two tabs will be added to CRM on the tab Companies — Cash register receipts and Expense reports. All checks, related to the company, will be collected on the tab Cash register receipts.


All expense reports will be shown on the appropriate page.


This tabs will appear automatically, if in the list will be created the field with binding to CRM and the box «Show on CRM details form» is ticked.


You can run the generation of documents not only on your own behalf, but also for another user. For example, for the manager/head, if he gave the instruction to form an expense report.

When running the workflow «Expense report» from Activity Stream, the following fields will be opened:




1) Responsible — select the employee, on behalf of which the workflow will be started. If this field is left blank, the documents for the expense report will be filled in for the user, who started the workflow.

2) Month report? — you may select “yes” or “no”. These options affect how the dates of orders and other documents are formed. If «yes» is selected (monthly report), as the last report dates will be taken beginning and end of the month. If the report is not for a month, then the range dates are the dates of the first and last checks.

3) Expense purpose — there are three types of expense reports. They differ in the set of documents, that will be generated when the workflow starts.

a. Fuel — only two documents are generated: office memorandum for fuel and expense report in Excel.

b. Business trip — only the expense report is generated (in Excel).

c. Representative expenses — a set of 6 documents is generated (details below).

4) Funds received — given money.

The accountant may approve the document or reject it, stating the reason in the comment. In this case, the workflow’s author will be notified that his check has been rejected, with an indication of the reason.


He has to make the appropriate changes to the list «Cash register receipts». After making changes, user has to click «Done». The accountant again receives a task for approval.
